There are currently 261 resident Tristan da Cunha Islanders. As with all populations, changes are due to births, deaths and also igration. Recently an additional returning Islander qualified (after two years) for full resident status and it is expected that four others in the same position will be added to the total in 2013. The latest addition is Marion Collins (nee Hagan) so officially the island now hosts eight surnames (if recently adopted double-barrelled combinations of existing surnames are ignored).
